This picture was taken in the last couple Rohwner Internment Camp, where many Japanese Americans were interned in 1942—among them George Takei. Mr. Takei is currently attempting to raise funds for Allegiance, a musical-themed telling of his families experiences.
“I’ve had wonderful time here in Arkansas!” said Mr. Takei. “I’m reposting this pic, taken on a journey back to Rohwer Camp in this state, where my family and I were interned in 1942. I’m glad to have new happy memories of Arkansas.”
Mr. Takei is currently attempting to raise funds for the musical Allegiance, a musical-themed telling of the story of his family’s experience during this internment.
“There are 7 days left in my campaign to raise funds for Allegiance, which will bring this story to the stage. I’m thrilled we’ve met our min. funding goal, but I’m shooting for 6 figures! If you can spare a few dollars, visit [the Indigogo Allegiance page]…Never forget, never again.”
The description from the Allegiance page reads, in part:
